Don’t miss out – Mind Medicine Australia’s Melbourne Chapter Opening Night!

Please join us for this unique opportunity to network with your local community, meet industry experts, mental health advocates, passionate community members, philanthropists and official representatives at Mind Medicine Australia’s first event in Melbourne this year on March 17th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.

Enjoy an engaging and informative presentation and Q&A from leading figures and experts from Mind Medicine Australia who are committed to the development of safe and effective psychedelic-assisted therapies to cure a range of mental illnesses.

This event will also include complimentary drinks and delicious canapés.

Mind Medicine Australia is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisation working on the use of medicinal psilocybin and MDMA-assisted therapies to treat a range of mental illnesses. Mind Medicine Australia exists to help alleviate the suffering caused by our accelerating mental illness epidemic in Australia, through expanding the treatment options available to medical practitioners and their patients.

Unlike current treatments such as anti-depressants, which only manage the illness and can have undesirable side effects, psilocybin and MDMA assisted therapies have been scientifically proven to be a safe and effective cure for anxiety, depression, end-of-life stress, addictions and PTSD after just a short treatment program. These medicines are also currently being researched for dementia, eating disorders, OCD and a number of other conditions. Research from over 150 trials indicates that the medicines are safe and non-addictive when administered within a medically-controlled environment, and lead to remissions in 60-80% of patients after just 2-3 medicinal sessions in combination with psychotherapy.

Both medicines have been granted Breakthrough Therapy Status by the FDA in the USA to fast-track their approval. This designation is only given to medicines which may prove to be vastly superior to existing treatments.

At Mind Medicine Australia we are dedicated to helping the now global movement to spread this awareness and ensure these medicines are available via the medical system.

Watch this video to find out how and understand why Mind Medicine Australia is committed to bringing about this opportunity for those who need it the most;

Speaking on the night will be Tania de Jong AM, our Founder and Executive Director, Peter Hunt AM, Our Founder and Board Chair, Dr Alana Roy, Head of our Psychological Support Services and Melbourne Chapter Leaders Alvin Narsey and Brigid Blanckenberg.
